Maggiana is a picturesque village located on a terrace overlooking the center of Mandello and the lake. In its center is the Torre del Barbarossa, of medieval origin, which in the 12th century hosted the emperor Federico I, known as “il Barbarossa”. Inside there is a museum with farm utensils that can be visited only by reservation or on the occasion of the June celebrations.
